Last week Suwon successfully defended his PhD thesis. Here’s the just about to start “action shot” courtesy of Joy.
Undergraduate Allison Rzepka presented her research at the ELI Undergraduate Research Poster Session last week.
Our latest collaborative paper with the Diesendruck group at the Technion is now out in Advanced Functional Materials. “Highly Stretchable Polymers: Mechanical Properties Improvement by Balancing Intra- and Intermolecular Interactions” was co-first authored by soon to defend MMD PhD candidate Suwon Bae and Diesendruck group PhD candidate Or Galant. In this work, Or and Suwon used a combination of […]
Suwon Bae’s new paper is now out in Macromolecules. This manuscript presents his molecular dynamics simulations examining the thermo-mechanical behavior of glassy polymers assembled from single chain polymer nanoparticles. Suwon’s simulations showed surprisingly good agreement with our earlier experimental work on the same class of materials. This is our third paper in our ongoing collaboration […]
Postdoc Yuval Vidavsky’s paper entitled Modulating Metallopolymer Mechanical Properties by Controlling Metal Ligand Crosslinking is featured as the cover article in the June issue of the Journal of Polymer Science: Polymer Chemistry. Yuval conceived, synthesized, and tested a series of polymers that can be reversibly crosslinked by addition and removal of copper cations, thereby tailoring the stiffness and […]
Our collaborative work with Minglin Ma’s group (Cornell Biological and Environmental Engineering) on a potential medical treatment for type 1 diabetes is now published in PNAS. The paper entitled “Designing a retrievable and scalable cell encapsulation device for potential treatment of type 1 diabetes” was led by Minglin’s PhD students Duo An and Alan Chiu. […]
Mechanochemistry in Materials is now available for purchase. This book includes a chapter on mechanochemical transduction in bulk polymers by PI Silberstein and former graduate student Meenakshi Manivannan and also a chapter on mechanophore design for chemical function by collaborator Charles Diesendruck.
